Sorry the call was disappointing. I will update the slides to provide more
clarity to the extent possible for the next call. Do you have more specific
ideas on what you expected on:
· core travel funding issues
I didn't focus on how we are handling all of the travel admin issues (e.g.,
visa, exception rules, etc.). Should I share more on that?

I have to admit I found the call very disappointing.
There was no real discussion on the core travel funding issues and the only
part of interest was Kevin's explanation of what ICANN is planning for the next
Tim's summary is spot on.

Thanks Tim for the update, very helpful.
It seems that the travel support situation is better now for GNSO.
As for the drafting team activities, we cuould review the outcome text by 25
May and then decide if we want to make comments as a council or not.
Any other comments?
